Lamination of Thin Webs for Packaging Seminar Dates Announced

Seminars For Engineers announces, in association with Dr. Duncan Darby of Clemson University, the 2010 dates for its new seminar "Lamination of Thin Webs for Packaging."

This content was submitted directly to this website by the supplier.

This two-day seminar will give engineers a comprehensive understanding of lamination processes and how they are applicable to flexible packaging. Lamination can often provide a better result for flexible packaging than monolayer materials can and is a very important technique to understand.

August 18 - 19, 2010
Philadelphia, PA

Time: Seminar hours are from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm each day unless otherwise indicated in the course description.

Instructor: Dr. Duncan Darby, an associate professor of packaging science at Clemson University, is a recognized expert in the use and manufacture of flexible packaging.
